It's nice to meet you! I'm Ellen Lazaretti, a UX Designer in Austin, Texas.
I'm currently working with a talented team in the EdTech space on a software product that uses the latest technologies to focus on direct assessment. Previously, I was the sole designer on a scrum team dedicated to tech debt and enhancements of existing system components on a comprehensive legacy product focused on planning, assessment and reporting. Outside work, I enjoy serving on the Austin User Experience Professionals Association (UXPA) board.
Over the past few years, I pivoted my career from visual design to user experience design. My journey into user experience started with informal online courses, which led me to return to college and complete a UX degree. I sought out hackathons and workshops to gain hands-on experience during this time. Solving problems, advocating for users and collaborating with diverse teams are a few of my passions.
